Watermelonely Without You

I’ll admit, I made this mostly just for fun. I had half a watermelon, an ever-growing mint plant, and it was a beautiful hot day. So. Refreshing.

A juicer is really not necessary to make this, and unless you don’t use a centrifugal juicer, I’d recommend not using a juicer. A blender, a nutribullet, or even a hand mixer, will all do the trick. I’m thankful I thought, last minute, to throw on an apron “just in case.” The explosion of watermelon that followed was as funny as it was messy. Lesson learned!

I bought a strain of mint called Strawberry Mint, and it has the sweetest, loveliest scent and taste. I thought it would make great mojitos, but I see myself using it in lots of juices this summer as well.
